Press the down arrow button to highlight Parental Controls, then press OK.

Press the down arrow button to highlight TV Ratings Locks then press OK.


Press the down arrow button to highlight the TV rating you wish to lock or unlock, then press OK.


Press the down arrow button to highlight the category within the TV rating that you wish to lock or unlock.


Press OK to turn the lock on or off.
